dennboldened be one has paid a penalty for the attacks in benghazi? >> i know that the fbi has been briefing some committees. i assume some members of this committee are included. i don't know that but i would assume. about the progress of their investigation. i got the most recent update from the director a few days ago when he returned from north africa. they are following some very promising leads and putting together cases. they would have to speak to you directly about that in a classified setting. but i think what they are trying to determine is how best to respond and i think what the president clearly said is, we will respond and we will bring those to justice and i don't think anybody should doubt this president at his word. we have some very good examples of that. it may take time but he does not in any way divert attention from the goal of bringing them to justice. >> thank you, madam secretary. the president also said al qaeda has been decimated and in light of the recent terrorist activities that we continue to see in north africa, around the world, would you characterize that a
in benghazi. >> i believe that drk i know that the fbi has been briefing some committees, i assume members or staff of this committee are included. i don't know that but i would assume, about the progress of their investigation. i got the most recent update from the director a few days ago when he returned from north africa. they are following some very promising leads and putting together cases. they would have to speak to you directly about that in a classified setting. but i think what they are trying to determine is how best to respond. and i think what the president clearly said is we will respond and we will bring those to justice. and i don't think anybody should doubt this president at his word. we have some very good example that it may take time but he does not in any way divert attention from the goal of bringing them to justice. >> thank you, madam secretary. the president also said al qaeda has been decembimated and in li of the recent terrorist acts tists we continue to see in north africa, around the world, would you character that as al qaeda has been decimated? >> core al
couldn't talk to them because an f.b.i. investigation was going on. >> well, senator, i understand your very strong feelings. you knew chris. you were a friend of chris. you were one of the staunchest supporters of the efforts to dislodge qaddafi and try to give the libyan people a chance. and we just have a disagreement. we have a disagreement about what did happen and when it happened with respect to explaining the sequence of events. we did get to talk to the d.s. agents when they got back to this country. we did so. it was not before september 15. we had no access to the surveillance cameras for weeks, which helped to answer a number of questions. >> ifill: the challenges continued later in the day before the house foreign affairs committee. >> over and over and over again it was repeated that we had enraged the islamic terrorists, which by the way, what's that do? when you say that we enraged the islamic terrorists, that's means we're at fault, they're not at fault. >> i want to be clear that of course it was a terrorist attack. the very next day i called it an attack by heavily ar
on 9/14 three days after the attack told the fbi there was no demonstration, this undercut the administration's false narrative that there was an anti-islam video to blame and this came two days before susan rice's statements on the sunday talk shows, also today, a leading republican said, given mrs. clinton's performance, having not reviewed these requests and these warnings that he would have fired her. here is rand paul. >> i'm glad that you're accepting responsibility, i think that ultimately with your leaving you accept the culpability for the worst tragedy since 9/11, and i really mean that. had i been president at the time, and i found that you did not read the cables from benghazi, did you not read the cables from ambassador stephens, i would have relieved you of your post. >> one thing to listen for at house foreign affairs, megyn, is the parsing of the language, what we heard from mrs. clinton al-qaeda core may be decimated, the traditional al-qaeda leadership with bin laden's death, but in fact, concedes that the taste or flavor of al-qaeda, al-qaeda 2.0 what we'

about it. i'll tell you this, if so, it's going to be short lived, because i know from talking to the f.b.i. director that they are pursuing that diligently. he was personally just in libya. meeting on this and those efforts are going to continue. and i know that this president -- you know, he doesn't bluff about these kinds of things. he has said they are going to pay a price and said he would go into pakistan if we had evidence to operate on and i'm confident when and if we are prepared, we will execute with respect to finding justice for what happened in benghazi. >> the keystone xl pipeline and senator boxer said, it wouldn't belong before it crossed your desk. a bipartisan group of senators signed on to a letter to president obama requesting that he approve the construction of the pipeline. we are asking that the review process be completed by the end of march and i hope you will be able to comply with that. >> i will try. i need to check in with the legal department and make sure -- i don't want to make a promise that i'm unaware of what can be fulfilled. i can tell you this. it's hap

brought to justice there? >> well i believe, well, i know that the fbi has been briefing some committees. i assume members of staff of this committee are included. i don't know that but i would assume, about the progress of their investigation. i got the most recent update from the director just a few days ago when he returned from north africa. they are following some very promising leads, and putting together cases. they with have to speak to you directly about that in a classified setting but you think what they are trying to determine is how best to respond and i think what the president clearly said is, we will respond. and we will bring those to justice and i don't think anybody should doubt this president at his word. we have some very good examples of that. it may take time but he does not in any way divert attention from the goal of bringing them to justice. >> thank you, madam secretary. the president also said al qaeda has been decimated. and in light of the recent terrorist activities that we continue to see in north africa, around the world, would you characterize that as al
interviewed the people who were there. instead of saying, no we cannot talk to them because an fbi investigation was going on. host: front page. our next call is an independent from ohio. caller: good morning. i have two. . first, there is no doubt in my mind what happened was muddied for political reasons. if you refuse to associate with a government that plays politics when their allies in the balance of decisions, everybody lies, but the question i asked is who gets the worst results. the second is on the kind of language used in the inquiries. the state department dropped the ball on libya. nobody asked a simple direct question, why did you deny repeated requests for more protection. by giving a tirade, they dilute the force of the simple question. the hardest and most useful question to answer is a simple direct one. host: thank you for calling. a couple of facebook comments. we have plenty more time for your postings and phone calls. we do want to spend a couple of minutes with eight journalists talking about another huge story. it started yesterday and will continue today wi
information has the fbi found on who did this, who these terrorists were specifically? when are we, when can we expect an update how this investigation is going? or is it dead in the water? is nothing actually happening? >> well, we're going to continue to work and i'm going to ask questions of secretary designee kerries because he will continue on with the work there. people still want justice. the president promised justice. when i asked the secretary yesterday was there justice, she said the president has promised and you can trust him to deliver. well, i'm not of the same mind set. i don't trust we'll find the full delivery of justice that the american people want from this president. martha: as john mccain pointed out, two of those four americans died in the final hour of a seven-hour siege. there are really still a lot of questions about why not more was done and who did this. senator barrasso, thank you so much. always good to have you on the show. >> thanks, martha. bill: you wonder now if those answers will ever come public at any point. >>> phil mickelson is one of the greatest gol
